A beautiful tribute to the ‘Cat Lady’ was held this past Thursday in Cook’s Chapel, uniting family with friends in saying farewell to Eileen Hoffman. The memories shared through her video tribute will forever be cherished by those sharing in this day.

Continue my heritage,

Keep smiling and surely,
